The New York Yankees battle the Detroit Tigers in game two of their doubleheader in Monday MLB action.
The New York Yankees as expected are battling the Red Sox for supremacy in the American League East. New York is recapturing the nickname Bronx Bombers with good reason behind the top ranked offense in the game that is averaging 5.65 runs on a .259 team BA. The Yankees have been riding the long with 90 homers which also is tops in the game.

The NYY haven’t been as dominant on the mound but the pitching has been competitive. New York is ranked #12 with a 3.80 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP which is number five in the majors.
The Yankees give Monday’s game two start to Domingo German who is still looking for his first win. In nine appearances (four starts), German has gone 0-3 with a 5.45 ERA.
The Detroit Tigers are hoping for a return to the top of the American League Central and are staying in the race so far. Detroit is still fighting to get above .500 but the team is still second in the division and in striking distance of first place Cleveland.
The Tigers have been hanging tough despite an average offense that scores 4.34 runs (#13) on a .259 BA while ranking 29 with 50 homers. The Detroit pitching is middle of the row as well at #17 with a 4.22 ERA so the team is doing well considering their overall numbers with no area being a strength.
Mike Fiers toes the rubber against the Yankees in the night cap of a twin bill on Monday night. Fiers has made ten starts in 2018 and has gone 4-3 with a 4.45 ERA.
NY Yankees are 12-4 in their last 16 road games and over is 6-2 in NY Yankees last 8 Monday games and NY Yankees are 20-7 in their last 27 Monday games. Under is 5-1 in Detroit last 6 vs. American League East and under is 30-11 in Detroit last 41 second games of a double-header. Over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings and NY Yankees are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Detroit.
I have no idea what the lineups will be in the second game of a DH and German is still a mystery so something on the over for an interest…
